Trump Wants ‘Attack Dog’ for Running Mate: Christie Odds at 10-1

GOP presumptive candidate Donald Trump picking New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as his running mate would pay out $100 for every $10 bet.

Shortly before 8 pm EST Tuesday, Trump announced that he was looking for “an attack dog” to do his dirty work.  Indiana Governor Mike Pence, the favorite at 1-3 odds, doesn’t exactly meet that description.

“I’m getting attacked from all sides,” he said.

Former House leader Newt Gingrich could serve as a so-called “attack dog”.  He was coming in at the second shortest odds late Tuesday at 5-1.  This price was cut from 3-1.
